Master's degrees often represent a continuation of studies and a refinement of academic focus. These courses tend to require a bachelor's degree for entry and typically take at least two years to complete.

What is a Master in Social Sciences? The social sciences are most often defined in terms of specializations. A prospective student is likely to encounter programs in areas such as anthropology, linguistics, economics, political science, sociology and history. However, there are also opportunities in this discipline for students who wish to pursue a hybrid or interdisciplinary program. In general, a social sciences master's degree takes students through an exploration of research methods and philosophy in addition to discussions of specific topics. These programs frequently feature projects requiring a blend of primary and secondary research, as well as extensive discussions, both written and verbal.

The ability to consider society from an academic perspective is often useful in many aspects of a graduate's life, from making travel more enjoyable to helping in personal relationships. Holding a master's degree might also provide a candidate with a certain level of initial credibility during the job search process.

Check with each institution for the most relevant tuition estimates. These figures vary depending on each school and might even change from year to year.

Many social scientists tend to graduate and go on to apply to doctoral programs. A PhD or other terminal degree programs might afford an opportunity for students to pursue specific interests through research. A social science master’s degree holder might find employment in any number of positions, depending on his or her specialization. Examples include data analysis, project management, fundraising or grant writing. There is also the possibility for graduates to qualify for corporate executive positions, such as vice president.

Each institution tends to offer distinct advantages. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

How does climate change reshape global politics? What will the world look like with the rise of China as a new superpower? Can regional conflicts shift the international power balance? How will a mainly urbanised world sustain itself? As the international scene becomes increasingly complex, understanding the fundamentals of how people, governments, international institutions and the environment interact is becoming increasingly important. If you are interested in understanding the intersections of space and politics then the MA in Geopolitics is specifically designed for you. Contemporary issues require advanced analysis that recognises the intersections of space, power and politics. From security challenges to cultural practices or climate change; from the global to every day, the connections between politics and space are increasingly complex. Integrating historical, cultural and political perspectives, the MA Geopolitics at QUB is an innovative interdisciplinary programme that seeks to build the knowledge and skills needed to engage these challenges. Taught by academic experts in Human Geography, Politics and International Relations, with a broad range of regional expertise and research perspectives, this new MA enables students to explore the questions which are shaping our lives. It is not just for geographers, international relations students, and political scientists but anyone with an interest in the core course themes. You will come to understand these intersections through a range of themes developed across the modules. These include nations, states, landscapes, mobilities, urban spaces, environmental change, sovereignty, identity, gender, empire and postcolonial relations, territory and borders, the politics of human rights and others. You can either specialise or learn across a range of issues such as culture, media, ethics, security and conflict, environmental politics, and democratic participation. You will be taught by experts in regions including East Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, the Middle East, the UK and Ireland. As you engage the intersections of space, power and politics you will develop advanced conceptual and analytic skills and subject knowledge needed to explore their intersections in a range of historic and contemporary issues. These skills will enable you to investigate problems shaping environments, places and landscapes and to challenge accepted wisdom. They are also particularly important skills for those pursuing careers in all sectors of government and the public sector, NGOs, international corporations, regional and international agencies, media and information industries. -
